This wine has a wonderful, deep, intense ruby red colour with important, solid, and wide organoleptic qualities, but above all it exalts the food it is combined with. It is very rich in polyphenols which harmonize with its fresh, tasty acidity. It is versatile red, quite innovative in style which can be appreciated immediately. It adapts easily to various dishes and can be drunk litghtheartedly drawing great pleasure from the sharp fragrance of its perfumes and its straightforward character. It should be drunk in wide crystal chalices where it can best develop its bouquet at a temperature of 18-19.
A blend of equal parts Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sangiovese grapes grown in the region of Umbria, Vitiano Rosso is vinified in stainless steel tanks and aged in French oak barrels for three months before being bottled. Made in a way that adheres to Riccardo Cotarella’s philosophy of meticulous winemaking, the result is a delicious, youthful red at a terrific value.
